I spent three days this week with Philip Bloom, Vincent Laforet, Tom Guilmette and others in Austin at the Masters in Motion seminar. I will tell you a bit more later about the excellent MIM. We spent some quality time with the Red Epic and the Phantom Flex, and lots of other great gear. The Phantom Flex will shoot 2570 fps at 1920 x 1080 (HD) resolution. When played back that is super slow motion. For a fun film showing lots of cool slow motion check out Tom Guilmette’s “Locked in a Las Vegas Hotel Room with the Phantom Flex.”
But if you want to see the Phantom Flex in a real story telling film, check out the video below. Philip Bloom shot this in Austin as part of the workshop, and edited it during the week. This is the best use of the PF to tell a story that I have seen. Most of the story is shot with Bloom’s Red Epic, but the Phantom Flex footage comes at the end, but does not detract from the story, only enhances it. By the way, this could be a nice addition to your camera bag, if you have about $400,000 for the camera and lens kit.
